Tree Swing for One


Great for olde massive trees and free spirited folk, this tree swing is made of responsibly-sourced Cypress from the south eastern region of the United States. We work closely with a lumber yard that is a part of the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) and has been supplying woodworkers with the highest-quality domestic hardwood since 1798.

We do not take any responsibility for the ruckus and mayhem that may occur on this swing.

- Sustainable Cypress from south-eastern USA
- Pro-Manila (⅝″ synthetic fiber) or Manila (¾″ natural fiber) rope
- 20′ of rope with 5600 lb. breaking strength (4800 lb. for Manila)
- Finished with tung oil
- Minimally packaged with instructional tag and jute


The swing uses Pro-Manila rope that is looped through the seat and secured with a square knot. Includes 20 feet of rope to attach to a tree branch or beam. On average, plan to use 5′ to 7′ of rope to tie to the tree.

We offer both Pro-Manila and Manila rope. Pro-Manila rope is a synthetic fiber and will not deteriorate over time due to moisture. Manilla rope is made of natural fibers. It will self abrade and deteriorate over time when left outside in the elements. It will also shrink 10% to 15% when wet, but will stretch back out to the original length once dry. Make sure to inspect the rope prior to using the swing. If there is any noticeable wear on the rope, it will need to be replaced to prevent breaking and injury. Peg and Awl is not responsible for the deterioration of the rope.

Additional rope is available to purchase here.
